We rescue pianos, put them on the street for everyone to enjoy, and then give them to schools, community centers, artists, and others who will love them as much as we do.
Piano. Push. Play.is on a mission to make pianos available to anyone who wants to play them. We work with local piano companies to rescue old pianos that are still in great shape. Every summer, we put pianos out on the sidewalk and let anyone who wants to, enjoy the experience of making music. Experienced musicians and passersby alike help create music in a public space. When summer is over, we place those pianos in schools and community centers for everyone to play all year long.
This is not just about piano or about music, this project is about re:imagining space…..creating more space for people to connect with one another
